Cover Illustration: Ms. 40th Anniversary


Go to: Ms. Magazine, by Michael and Laura Allred (via Kevin Melrose)

I've always felt a little ambivalent towards Ms. Magazine's original cover portrayal of Wonder Woman as a rampaging fifty-foot giantess, and this tribute doesn't completely assuage those feelings (for example, why is she trying so hard to crush the women in the foreground?). But I've liked Allred's retro interpretation of her since MACand of the DC universe in Solo. It's clearly got more in common with the Lynda Carter version of the character than the New 52 Wondy currently being drawn by Cliff Chiang, which I also like.
